If I'm not given a chart of electronegativity, how would I determine which has more ionic character: CO2 or CS2

You would have to decide based on the electronegative trends and see which elements in the molecule are farther apart (therefore, more electronegative).

CO2 is father apart, but CS2 is more electronegative

How do you know this?

I looked at a periodic table with electronegativity

Wait, I read it wrong, sorry.
